DAVE CLARKE MEMORIAL PARTY
Saturday 27th October
Unfortunately we have some heartbreaking news about David Clarke, a wonderful man who sadly passed away on Monday 9th July 2012.
In 2013 Dave would have celebrated 40 years in professional film and photography, a career that has taken him from assisting the legendary Duffy in the early 70's, through 25 years and 400 productions with BBC Television, to a successful period as a lecturer and lighting consultant.
Dave was taught film lighting by Powell and Pressburger’s favourite monochrome cinematographer Erwin Hillier BSC, and stills technique by Walter Nurnberg OBE. He had both an encyclopedic knowledge and unequalled authenticity to both classic and contemporary lighting styles.
In recent years he has helped get many careers off the ground with his generosity and ability to turn amateurs into professionals.
Dave was a regular face here at the studio, and it was an honour to have known him. We will miss your multitude of charity shop bargains and endless stories of past shoots and famous encounters.
Please join us in a fond farewell to DXC!!
Dave was a wonderful, helpful, caring and passionate man and we would like to, in accordance with his wishes, throw a celebration of his life and work here at the DOGHOUSE studio in Falmouth.
Please keep Saturday 27th October free in your diaries to come and celebrate the late, great man, friend, colleague, mentor and thoroughly nice chap Mr Dave Clarke.
We are looking for any material you may have of Dave either in front of or behind the camera.
There will also be a similar event in London. Date TBC.
In accordance with his wishes please:
- No Ties!
- No Morbid Speech’s
- And NO CUCUMBER SANDWICHES!!!
This is set to be a truly colourful celebration of a man who we all loved dearly.
HANSEL OF FILM
Hansel of Film is a UK wide relay of screenings of short films made by the public as part of the London 2012 Festival and it was fantastic to be chosen as the host for the only stop in the South-West.
It was great to have Mark Kermode in attendance at the doghouse.
FILM SCHOOL 2012
This years film “Birdbrain” provided a great opportunity for the students to gain hands on experience and work alongside our creative team in an intensive filmmaking environment. This was the 6th year of Dogbite working on Film School, a superb project run by Cornwall College, Camborne. 1st year students from the Extended Diploma Media Production are set the challenge of producing a short film in two weeks, from scratch. Alongside the film production the students also produce a making of documentary, a press pack and organise a premier attended by over 100 people including industry professionals.
Looking forward to next years project.
